HVH & ETB:Facts:EPA started 02-Dec-1970Gold King Mine
1887~1922, permitted until 2005.Animas started a long time ago (rough
estimate)The 'Evil, Earth-Hating Corporation' (EEHC), that
you wish to blame this on, had done what was required of them by the EPA to keep
the permit of operation to 2005 (Currently held by the Golden-based San Juan
Corp. (aka: EEHC)), thus having a permit to operate meant they were in
compliance.The EPA continues to add regulations & requirements
over the years, so yes (based on the EPA R&R as of today), the EEHC, if
still operation, might be out of compliance.The EEHC had created the
settlement/dilution ponds that were required to release the water to the Animus
river.The Animas river spill was created by the EPA plugging &
backing-up the waters (Ref. Dave Taylor, Farmington, NM letter to editor of The
Silverton Standard and The Miner newspaper, 30-Jul-2015).Those that
believe that Big Government is the end-all, be-all to their lives will only be
ruled by those in power.To quote a famous Frenchman "Now go away
or I shall taunt you a second time!"AIMHO
Animas River: If it weren't for the EPA, that toxic sludge would have been
pouring into the river for the last 100+ years, without any sort of
responsibility from the mining company who created it. Boom, drops mic,
walks off stage.
Pig Frizzle said: "Animas River! Boom! (mic drop, walk off stage)"So a mess left by a corporation, for the American tax payer to clean-up,
that is accidentally spilled is the equivalent of purposefully dumping toxins in
waterways to increase profits?This is why conservatives can't
be takin' seriously, complete ignorance of facts, history, or civic's
is common and even encouraged, by other simple minds on the radio and tv.
Animas River!Boom! (mic drop, walk off stage)
The EPA is the greatest threat to America. Pollution on the other hand is great
for business, great for American, great for those with Asthma, great for causing
Autism. I want to swim in a river that catches fire due to pollution. How
neat would that be?
EPA is the greatest threat to America.
"EPA sets limit for toxic pollutants released into waterways"Uh oh . . . Looks like the EVIL Federal government is up to it's old
tricks again . . . Denying the FREEDOM of corporate polluters to make huge
profits by poisoning Americans.The EPA is not even in the
Constitution, is it?
